maybe a year ago, I made a little sketch of a pair of Coraline earrings and necklace.  I was determined to make them...at the time.  I of course forgot about them, so they never got made.  well, some strange part of me has been wanting to try my hand at drawing again, so I grabbed my sketch pad, opened it and there was the Coraline earring and necklace set.  I was inspired.  so, I sat down and finally made the earrings.  Grin  unfortunately I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the necklace yet.  Undecided


you've got the black buttons, the needle and thread, plus the stone Coraline used to find the ghost children's eyes.  I know it was green in the movie, but I like red more.  and the lighting is bad, so you can't see the real color of the "stone" (it's actually a Swarovski cosmic triangle in crystal red magma).

I'm so happy with how they turned out.  Smiley

thanks all!!!  I had another cute idea to make these while I was getting the parts together, but I couldn't do it.  my idea included 2 needles and 2 spools, but I only had 1 needle and 2 spools.  if I had had 2 needles, I would have glued the spools into place with the needle going through the hole.  but I rather like the idea of 2 different earrings.  Smiley

Evil_tigger, I do it ALL the time.  so I was thrilled when I came across this idea and decided to sit down and do it before I forgot about it again.  Tongue

Boo_its_Brittany, it's one of mine too!  that's why I just had to make these!  Grin
